I've not used the plugin much yet but it seems to do everything I wanted of it - i.e. track pages as per Google Analytics with the added benefit of tracking logged-in users.
The main reason for the five star review is the five star customer service. I emailed on Saturday with a question, got a reply Sunday. My reply to this was answered again within 24 hours and my question is entirely resolved.
It's a product and service like this that makes me want to buy their add-ons just to support their work, though the extras offered by the add-ons make their purchase worthwhile anyway.
I've been using Slimstat among other tracker plugins for over a year now and I can say that it is by far my most favorite one. Presentation, filter mechanism, the way you can personalize it, regular updates and overall software stability make it my favorite tracking plugin.
I especially like the fact that you can specify an external website to analyze visitor IPs with a single click. If I had to suggest an improvement, I'd go for an option to add even more external IP lookup services (at least three), since they all differ in terms of features and functionality and sometimes also reliability, so being able to look up more than one without having to copy over the IP manually would be great. It would also be great if visitor search terms were visible right in the main stat with the referrer info, the page they visited etc.
Anway, great plugin that seems to get better over time. In the last few months there have been quite a few great updates that make me hope that Slimstat will be maintained for many years to come :)
I've been using Slimstat for 2 or 3 months. The real time Access Log with referrer and site performance metrics beats out every other tool I use for site monitoring in terms of intuitiveness and accessibility.
Had to try and test multiple plugins before I could find Slimstat.
The plugin is great, providing you with lots of informations, a perfect complementary tool next to Google analytics.
Support was also excellent!
Great team behind this plugin.
Big thanks to the Team :)
Love it, thank you.
Good plugin, quick support and relevent stats !
Good work !
though having detailed stats from my hoster I use WP SlimStat for a quick overview without having to leave WP-Backend.
Support is as well brilliant and superfast.
I started using this plugin a month ago and it has been super helpful already. I am running an online membership subscription service and it has really come in handy to know exactly what my members are doing. This really has it all: pageviews, time on site, browser information, heatmaps and room for custom code. I was able to track video player clicks and other types of click events to gain more detail about the user - in turn making our customer service better. The few questions and trouble I had, Camu was able to help me quickly and efficiently. Must have plugin if you're serious about analytics.
I am a pro advertiser. I advertise for my clients to get them sales and also create customized and clean landing pages. These landing pages are usually hidden from search engines and are not shared on social media.
The clicks shown in Facebook ad manager and Google adwords are 99% equals to what Slimstat shows.
Thank you for keeping it free.
